Psalms 12

1Help,  יהוה; for the righteous man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men. 2They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak. 3 יהוה shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things: 4Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips are our own: who is master over us? 5For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith  יהוה; I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him. 6The words of  יהוה are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. 7Thou shalt keep them, O  יהוה, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever. 8The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted.
